Don’t Mess With Texas Adjusters In Hail Damage Claims

Source: Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason LLP

Author: Roy
Texas hail claim policyholder lawyers, like many plaintiffs’ lawyers, clearly prefer to be in state court rather than federal court. To accomplish this and prevent the defendant insurer from properly removing the lawsuit to federal court, Texas policyholder attorneys simply sue the adjuster (who, like the policyholder, is almost always a Texas resident). This common act of gamesmanship ostensibly destroys the complete diversity of citizenship required for federal court diversity jurisdiction, allowing the policyholder to litigate its hail damage claim in state court.

The advantage of recruiting non-insurance workers as claims professionals

For independent adjusters, the need to replace retiring workers is becoming more urgent.
 

“A number of our front-line adjusters are very senior, very talented and experienced,” said Paul Féron senior vice president for Ontario and Manitoba at ClaimsPro LP. “In the next 5 to 10 years, a significant number of them will be retiring and deserve to retire. We need to be implementing proper succession planning and mentoring programs.”
